    His dismissal to Katich was worse. Ponting actually bowled okay.

    Did think about Ealham too, but his dad didn't play tests, if memory serves.
    No, Alan Ealham didn't play any tests.

    I did wonder about Stewart but I wasn't sure whether Micky played any tests. Perhaps Headley counts twice as his dad and grand-dad both played tests.


    Sidebottom and Broad must have played a few tests together a couple of years ago. Might there have been another descendant in the side then?

    TBF, I think it should be a disgraceful shot to a ball that really didn't need an attacking shot. Prior's would have been shocking but he had every right to play an attacking shot to that filth. Execution was terrible, obvs.

    If we're listing dumb Ian Bell dismissals, getting run out when the ball didn't reach the fence against India last summer has to be in the mix. The fact that Dhoni was persuaded to revoke the appeal is neither her nor there.

    Graeme Swann ✔ @Swannyg66

    Amazed to discover that @SMeaker18 has got to international level still believing that 'played on' is different to 'bowled' in the scorebook



    holy ****. this had better be true. THIS HAD BETTER BE TRUE
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Gun call. The closeness of the test makes it all the more stupid in hindsight.

    Tremmers, maybe?

    Although with the injury records of Sidearse and him having both in the one side may've been optimistic.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
